A streamlined version of Jerry Garcia's famed "Tiger" Guitar. Figured Maple with a Mahogany core yield a lighter, more shoulder friendly instrument than its predecessor while maintaining the clarity and sustain associated with the Garcia sound.
Like the original Tiger, the Mother of Pearl inlays throughout the guitar is meticulously hand cut, as it is in all DeLuis Guitars. I mention this repeatedly throughout my catalog because using CNC instead of hand cutting has become an industry norm, and I always want to honor Old World craftsmanship by utilizing skill, patience and practice in regards to the art of inlay.
Starting at $8,500.
